Inspired by original Faberge designs, the Fleur-de-lis Collection by Michel Perchin embodies the artistic majesty achieved by Faberge and his workmasters. Crafted in Europe from .925 sterling silver, and bearing a hallmark from the U.K., each individual piece is meticulously guilloched (engraved) on multiple levels.
Hard enamel is prepared in small quantities with a pestle and mortar, then hand-applied with a quill to the guilloche. Each piece is fired to an oven to 1,000 F, at which point the hard enamel is fused to the sterling silver. After polishing, the firing process is repeated to re-liquefy the enamel which completes the final surface with a prefect finish.
The clip, crown, ring and high relief fleur-de-lis patterns are then layered in 22-karat yellow gold or rhodium. Fitted with the Michel Perchin 18-karat gold nib and ebonite feeder, the Fluer-de-lis Collection will be limited to an aggregate production of 1,000 pieces 250 Blue, 250 Red, 250 Yellow and 250 Green.
The pen is new/ unused and in good condition, it has some light surface marks from being displayed. It does not come with any boxes or paperwork.
